Very dark, almost opaque, creamy head recedes quickly but is quite lacy; A mild subdued aroma, distinctive but faint - I can't name it; Smooth feeling, not overly carbonated, but not flat; Flavor is mild, pleasant, not robust, the vanilla in the name isn't apparent. A good beer - I could drink more of them.

The label on my bottle doesn't say "Remarkable" or "Partakable" like the one shown here on BA. I would say that this porter is definitely partakable, but not particularly remarkable.

This is okay, but sort of on the softer side of things. The vanilla sweetness is their. Light & refreshing. I am not too crazy about this dark beer. Cheers! B- (80-84) score range

Pretty bland but otherwise inoffensive. Not a tremendous amount of vanilla but the porter flavors are easy going and fine, just doesn’t have much muscle or identity

Breckenridge goes down very well a very thin taste like a true ale. Amazing for what it is. Would have rated it higher if it had more smell and taste. Well done. I'm a big fan of this Brewery
